Why be embarrassed of your smile?

A dazzling smile has the ability to brighten up any room, but tooth and gum issues can quickly turn your smile into a source of shame. A complete dental makeover by Dr. Benjamin Polan, a dentist in Beverly, MA will enhance your smile and improve your oral health through the restoration of damaged and missing teeth. Cosmetic dentistry brings your muscles and bite back to a natural position, relieving strain and beautifying your smile.

Go extreme with your dental makeover

If you’re self-conscious about the look of your teeth, then a full mouth makeover may be the answer you’re searching for. Through porcelain restoration, a makeover fixes rotten teeth, replaces fillings and crowns, and realigns your bite to improve the overall appearance of your teeth, smile, and face.

An experienced dentist such as Dr. Benjamin Polan utilizes the latest techniques and equipment, ensuring that his patients get the most effective possible dental makeover within the least amount of time. Without the latest equipment, patients would need to come back for several visits, upping the amount of time required and the costs along with it.

Increase your oral health with a dental makeover

Older techniques duplicate unbalanced bites and do not improve your face’s overall appearance. Aged teeth can make your face look older, and extensive tooth restoration can improve your overall oral health by replacing any broken or missing teeth. Cosmetic dentistry improves misaligned jaws and overlapping teeth with porcelain veneers, minimizing muscle and jaw pain. Upon completion of the procedure, you can retain your healthy smile by cleaning your teeth daily and avoiding hard foods. With extensive training in teeth restoration and neuromuscular dentistry, Dr. Ben Polan in Beverly, MA utilizes advanced computer neuromuscular technology to restore your smile while establishing a balanced jaw position for a comfortable bite. Getting full mouth restoration can provide you and your smile with new opportunities in life to grow healthier and happier.

Whiten your teeth in Beverly, MA with dentist Dr. Benjamin Polan

Teeth whitening = sparkling teeth

Human beings have been trying to clean and whiten their teeth for millenia. As early as 3000 B.C. people used twigs with the tip chewed to clean their teeth and remove plaque. A cosmetic dentist can safely and comfortably whiten teeth fast, sometimes up to 10 shades whiter. Teeth whitening is one of the most cost effective ways to improve your smile and more than 100 million people in America whiten their teeth using the various options available.

Why do teeth discolor?

As children, most of us are born with white teeth. Our secondary, or permanent teeth, are usually less white. As we age, our teeth naturally become discolored and darker. The outer covering on the tooth, the enamel, becomes thinner, more porous, and millions of microscopic cracks become filled with materials that stain the tooth.

Teeth can be stained by food and drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine. Smoking and chewing tobacco will also stain teeth quickly. Some health problems and developmental disorders can cause tooth discoloration, and certain people have naturally yellow or gray tinged teeth as a genetic heritage.

Invest in the best with Dr. Ben Polan in Beverly, MA

There are several different teeth whitening systems, including at home kits and in office whitening. Making an appointment for a consultation is the best way to find which system will work the best for you.

Teeth whitening, or bleaching agents actually change the color of your teeth. Unfortunately, they aren’t very effective at removing brown or grayish stains, nor are they the best choice for badly discolored teeth or restorations. In these cases porcelain veneers or dental bonding may be more appropriate.

A teeth whitening treatment supervised by Dr. Benjamin Polan in Beverly, MA will protect the surrounding tissues from irritation or damage from the whitening materials more effectively than home whitening treatments. While some commercially available whitening toothpastes can be somewhat effective at removing stains and making teeth a few shades brighter, many of these products have abrasive substances that can actually wear away your tooth’s enamel.

Teeth whitening can make a dramatic improvement in your appearance, and thus your confidence. If you are self-conscious about stained or discolored teeth or simply want to improve your smile for career purposes, feel free to contact us at any time for more information or a consultation.

Your smile is so much more than just teeth

Aristotle once famously said, “The whole is more than the sum of its parts.” Comprised of your gums, lips, teeth and surrounding bone structure, your smile is significantly more than just another part of your body.

Facial expressions are an essential means of communication. Your smile can welcome people, put them at ease and display your confidence. It is capable of bridging cultures, language barriers, and generation gaps.

What Constitutes a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is a general term for various cosmetic dentistry procedures that can improve one’s smile. Some examples of cosmetic procedures are:

  • Teeth Whitening is one of the most common ways to quickly, comfortably and safely enhance your smile.
  • Dental Veneers can greatly improve a smile. Made from porcelain, they are very thin facings that are fastened to your teeth. They can be used to whiten teeth, fix chips, close gaps and cover any breaks in an easy and affordable manner.
  • Dental Implants are used to replace missing teeth or tooth roots. They help in the preservation and restoration of bone in the jaw, which also helps to preserve and restore the shape of your face.
  • Dental Crowns offer health, strength and beauty to teeth that have been broken, stained or decayed.
  • Dental Bridges assist in filling the gaps that have been left by one or more missing teeth.
  • Orthotics are used for the purpose of straightening crooked teeth, providing a straight, gorgeous smile.

To understand which cosmetic procedure will be effective for you, an inspection from Dr. Benjamin Polan in Beverly, MA will be needed. He will thoroughly inspect your jaws, teeth and facial structure, and from there can recommend the treatments best suited for giving you the smile that you have always desired.

Why a better smile can have a positive effect in your life

A straight, pearly smile helps convey health, youth and intelligence. In today’s world, despite what some may choose to believe, appearances really do matter. Whatever you’re doing, be it assisting a customer, going out for a job interview, going on a date, meeting with a client or setting an example for your children, your confidence will help you get through any challenge. It’s often said that a smile is a window to the soul, and when your smile is at its best, you’ll be able to show off a beautiful, confident soul.

Often, an unsightly smile can be a side effect of poor oral health. More than just a cosmetic issue, poor oral health can lead to a host of adverse effects. Infections, abscesses and various levels of pain can all be associated with subpar oral health. Luckily, many of these issues can be rectified or prevented with proper dental work from Dr. Benjamin Polan in Beverly, MA.

Give the world the gift of a new smile

Broken teeth? Get the smile you deserve

Broken teeth are the most common reason for people to hide their smile. Having a cracked or broken smile is a huge blow to a person’s confidence. Alongside this, it’s often a source of intense pain as your teeth can shift to cover a gap, and if left untreated a break or crack can even develop painful infections. These infections can start in your tooth area, but given time they can and will affect the rest of your body as well.

Beyond physical changes, broken and cracked teeth can be difficult to clean. Improperly cleaning your damaged tooth can lead to decay, which can spread throughout other neighboring teeth.

Treatment options for broken or cracked teeth

The pain from broken and cracked teeth can easily ruin a good night’s sleep or keep you away from social events. Toothache may be temporarily relieved with painkillers, but the pain is guaranteed to reappear. Get the treatment you need and say yes to a confident and painless smile. Some individuals have opted to have a root canal for their broken or cracked teeth. After the root canal has been completed, a crown may have been placed over the broken tooth. A crown that has been placed improperly will cause your tooth to become more brittle, which can eventually lead to tooth rot.

Local Beverly, MA dentist Dr. Benjamin Polan has the experience to repair any broken or cracked teeth, alleviate the pain caused by them, and even restore your lost confidence. Get the smile that you deserve while putting an end to the almost unbearable pain caused by your broken or cracked tooth.

Have a Perfect Smile with Braces

Perfect smiles are often a source of envy for those of us who didn’t receive braces at a young age. We often believe that braces are no longer an option and that they might have too big of an impact on our current daily lives. In actuality, more and more adults are opting for perfect teeth and adult braces.

Why braces?

Various things can cause your teeth to become crooked or your jaws to be misaligned, including: crooked or crowded teeth, overbites or underbites, incorrect jaw position and disorders of the jaw joints. If left untreated these problems can become more serious, resulting in tooth decay, gum disease, headaches, earaches, and speaking, biting or chewing problems. Orthodontic techniques and technology have advanced significantly within the last decade. It not only takes less time until you can show off that perfect smile, but it’s a much less noticeable process.

Procedures

Orthodontic procedures are complex processes which is why it’s important to see a dentist such as Dr. Benjamin Polan. In most cases, the dentist will need to make a plaster cast of the individual’s teeth and perform full X-rays of the head and mouth. After orthodontic appliances are placed, they need to be adjusted from time to time to ensure that they continue to move the teeth into their correct position. Retainers are used following the braces to ensure that the teeth remain in position.

Aesthetic and Comfort Issues

Advances in technology have vastly improved appearance issues with braces. Today they are made from extremely lightweight and natural-colored materials. The braces are attached to the teeth via a bonding agent, which is completely removable after the process. Since orthodontic appliances need to be regularly adjusted they can create pressure on the teeth and jaws. This mild discomfort will quickly subside following each adjustment.

Hygiene issues around kid and adult braces in Beverly, MA

People who wear braces must be diligent in ensuring that food particles and other debris do not get trapped in the network of brackets and wires. Daily oral hygiene such as brushing, flossing and rinsing are a necessity. Some people with orthodontic appliances can benefit from using water picks, which emit small pressurized bursts of water that can effectively rinse away such debris.

Questions?

You and your child are probably going to have all sorts of questions on when to best obtain the braces, how long the process will take, and of course if they’ll affect school pictures. If you need more information about kid or adult braces, Beverly MA dentist Dr. Ben Polan has the answers. His primary goal is to make sure that nobody is left in the dark and that everyone is at ease during all stages of the process.
